Items with asterisks (*) are pre-order items.

  • Is anyone surprised that Ghosts is at the top of the list? It's currently #7 on the overall Amazon books chart. 
  • Aside from Raina Telgemeier, who takes up eight of the slots in the top fifty (including four of the top ten), the list is really dominated by hybrid comic-novels, such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid and its ilk. In fact, it can be tricky sometimes deciding what the weed out of the Amazon chart for not being comic-like enough. 
  • There isn't a lot of overlap between the kids best-sellers list and the regular comics & graphic novels best-sellers list. But there are a few items, listed on both, which gives us a chance to calibrate between the two. The top book on this week's regular Amazon Top 50 Comics chart is the Kindle edition of Big Nate: From the Top, which is #4 on the children's list. Then there's Pokémon Adventures box set, which is #40 on the regular list and #49 on the children's list.
